Hello my lovely pumpkins! Today, I am sharing with you a detailed Good Molecules review. I have not done a brand review in a while and the first one that I did was for Pixi Beauty [you can check it out here]. For this post, I am opting for a different format and I want to focus more on the brand itself [like what it stands for] and of course the formulation of the products. I’m still learning about skincare and ingredients so if I say something wrong, let me know. Also, these products were gifted to my by Beautylish but all opinions are my own!
Anyways, If you want to know my honest Good Molecules review then keep on reading! Don’t forget to check out my previous post : APRIL MOVIE REVIEWS
Good molecules brand review
“The idea behind Good Molecules is simple: skincare that works at a fair price”. Good molecules was founded by beautylish and is a cruelty-free, budget-friendly brand that focuses on being effective yet simple. Their ingredients list is very concise and precise which I really love and some of their products are vegan. They also offer products that target specific concern like acne or hyperpigmentation. Their products range from 6$ to 25$ and they are considered to be a sustainable brand. Moreover, if I am not mistaken, all of their products are fragrance free and free of any irritating ingredients.
Silicon-free priming moisturizer
This product retails for 19$ and contains 50ml of product. First of all, I love the packaging, it allows us to use every ounce of product, without wasting any of it, which is awesome! Second of all, I love that it’s fragrance-free because fragrance and essentials oils can be really irritating to the skin and can cause more damage than good to your skin on the long-term.
Overall, it’s a pretty simple moisturizer. It does what it’s supposed to do : moisturize without feeling heavy. It won’t be ideal for oily or dry skin though. I would say that it’s more targeted for normal and combination skin types. Other than that, I spot great ingredients such as shea butter, macadamia ternifolia Seed Oil and Sodium Hyaluronate (which is a form of hyaluronic acid), which are all amazing to deeply hydrate the skin! In general, I spot nothing problematic in the ingredients list. It only contains good ingredients but it’s also nothing extraordinary.
Pure Cold-Pressed Rosehip Seed oil
This product retails for 14$ and contains 13ml of product. It’s suitable for daily/nightly use and it’s 100% Chilean Rosa Rubiginosa (Rosehip) Seed Oil. It’s a great oil for dry skin but it absorbs super quickly into the skin and it does not feel oily whatsoever. It’s ethically sourced which I love and it feels very hydrating and nourishing. It was actually handpicked by farmers in the Patagonia Austral Of Chile. On the long term, I know that rosehip oil is amazing for acne scars and dark spots but i’ll let you know. In general, it’s a really simple, soothing and non-irritating oil!
Daily Brightening Serum
This serum retails for 15$ and contains 30ml of product. It’s suitable for daily use and targets dull and uneven skin tone. This serum’s main ingredient is Arbutin. It is a brightening agent and has great antioxidant properties. It’s good to brighten dark spots and easily replaces hydroquonine which is quite problematic in the skincare industry. It also contains great moisturizing agents like Glycerin, Sodium Hyaluronate and Hyaluronic Acid. It’s again a simple product and I enjoyed using it. It always made my skin quite plumped but to be honest, I did not notice any huge difference on my dark spots and the overall brightness of my skin. According to Paula’s choice, arbutin is an amazing ingredient, maybe I should have used it longer. I don’t know.
Super Peptide Serum
This serum retails for 17$ and contains 30ml of product. It’s suitable for daily use and targets dullness and fine lines/wrinkles. This serum supposed to boost collagen and hence make the skin look more firm and plumped. It contains good moisturizing agent like glycerin and sodium hyaluronate. Like all of the serums in this post, it does not contain any fragrance and that’s a good thing because like I mentioned above, fragrance and essential oils can be really irritating to the skin.
In general, I didn’t find anything special in this serum and I did not see any difference on my skin. I think it’s my least favorite serum. It did enjoy using it, I just saw NO difference whatsoever. Again, maybe I should have used it longer. I don’t know. Also, I don’t think that’s what my skin needs in general. I already feel like my skin is firm so maybe that’s why I didn’t see any difference.
Note : all skincare products take the time to show results so be patient. I only got to use these products for a month each and that’s actually not enough to show a difference. Also, I emptied all of these serums and currently finishing the moisturizer and rosehip oil.
Discolouration Correcting serum
This serum retails for 17$ and contains 30ml of product. It’s suitable for daily use and targets uneven skin tone, dullness and hyperpigmentation. It contains Niacinamide which is a great ingredient for brightening dark sport and to control sebum production. It also contains great humectant like glycerin and hyaluronic acid which is great to keep the skin hydrated. Again, this serum contains some great ingredients, nothing too fancy and innovative but I definitely think this is my favorite serum out of all the three because I’ve seen the most changes in my skin while using it. Plus, I know that Niacinamide is a great ingredient for my skin type so I highly recommend it if you have oily/combination skin.
Conclusion – Good Molecules brand review
To conclude, I really enjoyed trying these products out. Good Molecules is definitely a brand I want to explore more and that I think, is one of the few to care enough about their customers to offer a really effective formula without robbing us of our money. Their products is really straight to the point which I really appreciate and overall, I had a wonderful experience with them! Like I mentioned, they are pretty simple and their products are not innovative and over the top but sometimes, simple is better!
